Blue Badge "advice" warning

Some private websites charge a fee for advice and help with applications for a Blue Badge. These websites are not connected with us or the government, and do not guarantee a successful application. We advise residents simply to follow the advice and links here on our website.

The website bluebadge-uk.com is 'copycat' site that charges a fee you shouldn't have to pay. We strongly advise you not to use this website. If you've been affected by a private website that has charged you a fee, you should report it to the Citizens Advice consumer service.
